Expo 86 is the third full-length album by Canadian indie rock band Wolf Parade. It was released on 29 June 2010.[13] [14]

"Expo 86" was recognized by Exclaim! as the No. 17 Pop & Rock Album of 2010.[15] Exclaim! writer Josh O'Kane said: "Long gone are the densely layered sonic landscapes of Wolf Parade albums past ― Expo 86 marks an evolution in sound, but not a change. It's Spencer Krug's manic-pop circus meeting Dan Boeckner's twitchy Springsteen revivalism in one sprawling album that's simultaneously more disjointed and more confident than ever."
